Book Review: Prayers of a Stranger: A Christmas Journey

Davis Bunn has captured me with his most recent book Prayers of a Stranger: a Christmas Journey.

Amanda and her husband Chris Vance suffered a tragic loss last Christmas. Amanda is rather ambivalent about trekking to meet up with her husband's family for Christmas this year. Then, an unexpected gift comes in the form of a trip to the Holy Land. Chris senses Amanda's need to heal her heart and sends her off on an adventure that changes grief into something more and a stranger's prayer brings about a change we can all believe in.

This book offers memorable characters, strong emotion, extraordinary personal challenges, and, above all, eventual healing by the Spirit of God. Its rich emotions and detailed descriptions draw you in and refuse to let go. I am always pleased and surprised when I come across a book that I want to reread as soon as I finish it, and this is one of those books.

The book is equally beneficial for men and women, and appropriate for any time of year. I liked the interplay between the older married couple and Amanda and Chris. Put it on your reading list for an entertaining read that you just wont want to put down.
